WELCOME TO THE BUREAU OF MEDICINE AND SURGERY (BUMED)
The Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery is the headquarters command for Navy Medicine. Under the leadership of the Navy Surgeon General, Vice Adm. Adam M. Robinson, Navy Medicine provides high quality, economical health care to beneficiaries in wartime and in peacetime. Highly trained Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide – providing critical mission support aboard ship, in the air, and on the battlefield. At the same time, Navy Medicine’s military and civilian health care professionals are providing care for uniformed services’ family members and retirees at military treatment facilities around the globe. Every day, no matter what the environment, Navy Medicine is ready to care for those in need…anytime, anywhere.
The historic Bureau of Medicine and Surgery campus is located in the heart of Washington DC, near such landmarks as the White House, the National Mall, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. In years past, the BUMED campus served as the U.S. Naval Observatory, Washington Naval Hospital, and a medical/nursing school. Today, BUMED is the site where the leadership for Navy Medicine is crafted and the strategic planning and policymaking to achieve that vision is carried out.
